Pelvic pain and PID/Endo?

I have been having severe left pelvic area pain for a few months now. I have been to an orthopedist, who can't seem to figure out what is wrong, and told me to go to see an OB-GYN. 

I have an appointment this upcoming Thursday, so I called my mom to ask her what to expect (having never gone to one before). She said that since the orthopedist said it could be PID or endometriosis, that she would run a complete panel to check for any kind of infection, then possibly an ultrasound. I will probably get put on antibiotics as a "just in case" measure.

Does anyone have anything to add to this?
Ideas to help with pain are also VERY welcome. I'm starting to think the ortho was right. I tried a vinegar bath, and have noticed some improvement. A heating pad also helps.
